I know people eat salmon eggs but does anyone eat walleye, perch, or other fresh water fish eggs? How do you fix them?

Fry perch eggs with the fish, better than salmon eggs I think.

I've eaten whitefish fish eggs several times. Raw with just some pepper or hot sauce

Herring roe and shad roe are delicious.

Spoonbill eggs raw and salted are barely edible. I will have to be pretty hungry to eat them again

You can't beat perch eggs IMO! Fry them with the fish. I like my perch in the round.

Gar , as far as I know , are toxic but that appears to be about it . I believe other species we encounter are fine.

They sell Ohio, farm raised Spoonbill (paddlefish) eggs for $60.00 for 50 grams.

https://www.bigfishfarms.com/new-products

I know a Kentucky, commercial fisherman, who makes a significant portion of his income, catching wild Spoonbill, for their eggs.

Can you legally sell the eggs from the paddlefish you catch in Kansas?

I fished in Manitoba for Lake Trout in the fall and our guide said Native babies are fed their eggs raw. I tried them, before we released the fish, tastes like cantelope.

False. Is sold retail, harvested mostly in LA. Poor man's caviar, but is still expensive. Chouepique (shoe-pick)

Most of them will give you a stellar case of bubble guts if you eat too many.

Always keep walleye, bass, or any lake fish eggs. Roll them in the meal and fry them. They are very good!

Don't do fish eggs, but I love shrimp eggs!


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

Tried perch eggs once, rolled in corn meal and fried, way to fishy for me. Tried caviar once never again. I love fish but the eggs I will leave to someone who enjoys them.
